Friday is here again

Friday is here again

I am playing mahjong today for the first time since the coronavirus. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to play but I am hoping I can sit for 2 hours at least. Unfortunately my wheelchair cripples me more than I’m already crippled. It’s the muscles in my core (a reader of my blog explained this to me). I’m reclined in my comfy chair, not putting strain on my muscles. In the wheelchair, I am sitting up. There is…

My back can’t always hold me up anymore

My back can’t always hold me up anymore

I slept so good last night. I went to before 10:00 and slept through until 4am. Then went back to sleep until almost 9. That’s some quality sleep right there. I was woken up by my dogs running to greet my aid coming through the door. Otherwise I might have slept even longer. Guess I was tired. I’m always tired. Today is mahjong. I love mahjong but I didn’t hold up so well last week. Actually let me rephrase that,…

Thursday dealings

Thursday dealings

We played trivia pursuit in the condo club yesterday and I’m happy to report I actually knew some answers. For once I helped my team. We didn’t win because we didn’t finish the game but we were in second place. I was proud. That is not an easy game especially the original edition. They are officially doing work on the empty lot for that hotel. I still can’t find any new plans since the one from 2015 but work has…

Game day at the condo

Game day at the condo

Yesterday I had my first game day with the other retired people in my condo. For some reason it ended up only being 5 of us. We played a card game called Mille Bornes. It was fun you try to travel a 1000 miles but people can give you stop cards or accidents and other things that stop your ability to move until you pick the correct card to get out of the incident. I did not win but I…

A fun day

A fun day

Yesterday was a fun day. My mahjong friends came by me and we played mahjong all afternoon. My mom came later to teach us how to form a hand faster. It was just a nice day. We played in my condo meeting room. It is this huge room with a kitchen, one large bookshelf filled with books, tons of chairs and one long table because the only time this room is used is for condo meetings twice a year. It…

Mahjong fun with friends and good for the brain

Mahjong fun with friends and good for the brain

What fun yesterday was. My MS friends and I joined a beginners class to learn mahjong. I must admit I did have a lesson before with my mom and my girlfriends which was a lot of fun but it was difficult organizing everyone to get together again. I’ve been wanting to learn mahjong for a long time. I originally brought the idea up to my MS girls because we are around during the day and I thought it would be…

The weekly review

The weekly review

Well Mahjong was a blast yesterday. I picked it up pretty well. My mom was impressed how quickly I got it. I grew up around my mom playing it every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. If I was home sick I’d hear them all day calling the tiles. After a while you pick some things up. Everyone else was getting it by the end. We are going to get another lesson. I just finished swimming 50 laps. The pool was filed…

Learning Mahjong tonight

Learning Mahjong tonight

I’m actually very excited about this. I’ve wanted to learn this for a long time. I’ve really had no excuse, my mother and stepfather teach people to play it. However, it’s not really my stepdads favorite thing. You need at least four people. We were going to enlist my daughter as the fourth. She really don’t want to do it. I finally just asked my friends and they were like “I want to learn”. So tonight it’s just my mom,…
